Now is the perfect time to continue if you haven’t taken up meditation. We already know that the practice of consciousness is useful to reset and stabilize yourself, in particular, if your stress is sensitive. However, a recent long-term study investigated how the meditation slows down the aging of a Buddhist monk’s brain over the last 18 years by analyzing the impact of meditation and encouraging performance.
A well-meditation practice and author, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche volunteered to have his brain scanned for almost 20 years. Rinpoché, as the son of a meditation master, was very young in his practice. This became ritualized even further as this reached adulthood and proceeded to study and to improve itself in a Buddhist monastery. For the research Rinpoche scanned the brain in 2002, 2005, 2007, and 2016, with 105 non-adults in Madison, Wisconsin, being scanned as a control sample, at 27, 30, 32 and 41, respectively.
Rinpoche was 41 and the study concluded that he had brain scans of a 33-year-old average, indicating that meditating in his brain delayed daily aging by 8 years compared with others.
Many studies have shown that meditation can delay your aging and sharpen your mind, and is especially helpful to relieve stress. Remember, however, that long-term stress will affect the entire health of your body. Heart and blood pressure, diabetes, and how they can intensify anxiety and depression are the issues we are talking about.
Yet these are just the primary benefits of meditation. Though I have got to try that out tonight and return to you later, meditation might also help with your time of trouble. And if you don’t feel that the straight-idea is right for you to sit still and clear your minds, several different kinds of meditation are required to play with.
You may be unable to do meditation day out for hours and hours in the practice of a true Buddhist monk. But now is the time for what you do. As it may benefit you to add a meditative practice to your daily routine, well, what is your expectation?
